OPSEC - Navy Operations Security

Always keep Navy Operations Security in mind.  In the Navy, it's essential to remember that "loose lips sink ships."  OPSEC is everyone's responsibility. 

DON'T post critical information including future destinations or ports of call; future operations, exercises or missions; deployment or homecoming dates.  

DO be smart, use your head, always think OPSEC when using texts, email, phone, and social media, and watch this video: "Importance of Navy OPSEC."

Do you know when that call would be???

From the updated list posted earlier div 100 is scheduled mon/tues. - so we should get calls tuesday.  I'm still hoping the original list was the correct one and they are doing BS now and will call tomorrow :)  I know we are so close to friday but I feel like I'm going to burst with the waiting!  

I feel the same way! I have been very emotional the past two days...anxiety, excitement, worry. Do our SR's get to call after battlestations?

How are all of you moms holding up?  I sure hope this day goes by fast!    I am thinking of all of you and praying for their division's success!  Have a great day!
